I searched around and could not find an answer so I figured I'd ask. Is there a difference between a regular lincoln welder like you'd buy from a local Airgas and the ones that Home Depot sells?
I am looking at the Lincoln Weld Pak 180 HD, Home Depot lists it on their site for $669 I believe. There are a handful of reviews (7 to be exact) and those who bought it seem to love it.
Would the warranty on this machine be the same? Still made in the USA? Did they cut corners on this thing to offer it to HD for a cheaper price?
